One way or another we’ll all have to agree the Egypt is like no other country, not in the MENA region, and definitely not like any other country in the world. From rich culture, vibrant lifestyle and friendly locals, living in Cairo would be a blessing.
With Cairo being the home to more than 7 million Egyptians, and holding hundreds of communities and sub-communities it’s certainly challenging to pick an apartment, villa or townhouse for your new home.

Make sure that you have a look at a vast number of property types in various areas all over Cairo before you make up your mind on where you would like to move into. From townhouses and villas in closed and gated compounds to villas and apartments in standalone apartment buildings there’s a wide range of property types that you would have to choose from.
Choosing a property type would be easier made if you already have an idea on what type of amenities that you wish to have surrounding your home. For instance if you wish to have free and complete access to pools and fitness centers, go for an apartment or villa for rent / sale in a gated compound. Most of the gated compounds that are found in Cairo promise their residents 24/7 security, top notch finishing of the properties, and proximity to supermarkets and complexes that would meet all their needs and wants.
